Happy Birthday daughter o' mine ~

I don't know how I got to be so lucky ...


All weekend long, when people would find out that Kacey was turning 21, they would immediately get excited and ask her if she was going to go get drunk for her big day. Woo hoo!

She would politely say no ... and continue with her enthusiasm of a birthday weekend ... albeit a sober one.

I'm so pleased with this girl! She has a natural knack for good choices that have already taken her to great places.

So today, instead of getting wasted on her 21st birthday, she was sitting in a small room in our church house, teaching some cute little kids about Jesus and His teachings. Then she came home and spent the day with her family, friends and homemade pizza.

The picture above makes me laugh ... as does Kacey every day. We were sitting in the middle of a football field, it was soooooo scorching hot outside, and we got the giggles. We got the BEST giggles! People were looking at us wondering why we were being so silly. Kacey came as close as she has ever come to smoking that day, as she posed for what people probably thought we'd been doing to precede such giggles.

It has been so much fun living with this little lady. I treasure her every day and I thank my lucky stars for the relationship we have.

Happy Birthday little one!

I love you & I'm super proud of you ~
